Hello Fabulous

February 13, 2020

Today’s Fancy Fold is a “W” card.  Sounds interesting doesn’t it?  I think I might have shared one of these with you previously but this one uses the Dressed to Impress stamp set from the 2020 Handmade For You Mini Catalogue.  I began by embossing Whisper White card using the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder.  I attached the embossed card to scored and folded Smoky Slate card.  To decorate the front of the card I borrowed an idea I saw somewhere, on Pinterest, I believe.  Unfortunately, I can’t find it now.  To do this you need to cut two scalloped circles from Smoky Slate card, one circle from Whisper White and one circle from Silver Foil.  The last piece you need is cut from Whisper White card, which is folded in half and when you cut it with the circle you leave them attached at the folded edge. All of the circles and scalloped circles are cut using the Layering Circle Dies.  I attached the Silver Foil circle to the inside of the folded circles before attaching them to a Smoky Slate scalloped circle.  You might need to trim the Silver Foil circle so that it sits below the score line.   I attached the second Smoky Slate scalloped circle to the top of the folded Whisper White circle before attaching the panel to the card front.   I stamped the greeting using Poppy Parade and the lipstick image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto the last Whisper White circle.  The greeting and the lipstick image are from  the Dressed to Impress stamp set.  I coloured the lipstick image using Dark Poppy Parade and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends.  The  stamped circle is attached to the top of the Smoky Slate scalloped circle.  When you lift the top circle you get a mirror like effect from the Silver Foil, creating a kind of makeup mirror – someone(?), was very clever!  To decorate the inside of the card, I embossed two pieces of Whisper White card using the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder.  I scored a strip strip of Smoky Slate card to create the “W” mechanism.  This mechanism is attached to the outside of each of the panels before they are attached to the inside of the card.  I created four panels to fit onto the “W” mechanism from Whisper White, Poppy Parade and Smoky Slate card.  For the first panel I stamped the greeting from the Dressed to Impress stamp set using Poppy Parade ink.  For the second panel I stamped the perfume image and coloured it using Light So Saffron, Light Smoky Slate and Light  Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends.  The third panel I didn’t stamp so I would have somewhere to write a greeting.  For the last panel I stamped the shoe image from the Dressed to Impress stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I covered the image with a post-it-note mask and stamped the shoe a second time.  I removed the mask and coloured the image using Poppy Parade and Light Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends.

Isn’t this a fun fold?  When you fold the card closed, the “W” mechanism stays hidden inside the card and pops up when you open it.  The front of the card lifts as well, so it’s a kind of double fun fold!  I’d love to hear what you think.

Bye for now,

Kris
